After the first two rounds of Supercross Michael has shown he has the speed to run up front. In Anaheim he didn’t get good starts and got caught in some pile ups. Last weekend in Phoenix he grabbed the holeshot in the Heat Race but was hit from behind, which took him down and ended his chances of qualifying. It’s been a rough start for the rookie sensation but Michael has a great attitude and is excited for Anaheim 2 this Saturday.
